Banbury Constituency Labour Party

Banbury will have a direct voice in the development of health services at the Horton Hospital

Surinder DhesiCouncillor Surinder Dhesi (Banbury Neithrop) has been nominated (May 2014) by the County Labour Group to be appointed to the Oxfordshire’s Joint Health Overview Scrutiny Committee (HOSC). This means that the views of Banbury residents will be represented in any future changes to the services at the Horton Hospital.

Surinder Dhesi says, “I will fight to ensure that we retain the services we have locally and to make sure we have a hospital that serves our ever-growing Community.”


The Oxfordshire’s Joint Health Overview Scrutiny Committee, which is composed of County and District Council representatives and co-opted experts, reviews and scrutinises any matter relating to the planning, provision and operation of health services in the area of its local authorities, including health issues, systems or economics, as well as services provided, commissioned or managed by the NHS.
